Worst handled speed run ever not to mention that Kedar Guy at the Vip Gate, he should have been rolled over by GS skyline for the attitude he threw at people claiming that he IS BPCL..he needs to get his head checked coz all he was, was a gate keeper.

The first run when she did 10.5 was with a co passenger ( Farokh Commissariat ) , it was just a trial run.

So guys, take a bow..Refer to the thread 1200 bhp skyline,where all of you ridiculed me when i suggested the car had the potential to run under 8 second, which I still maintain.
Yeah dominator, by the way spoke to the aussies on the track 800 was the figure given.. Thanks.

its a 1200+ BHP skyline with 2 speed automatic transmission (Tiptronic) and runs on 116 octane fuel

it needs to be revved at 6000 RPM for the launch and to get to that 6000 RPM mark, it needs to be given a Nitrous shot

at the Speed run it did 0-100kmph in 2.6 secs at around 100mtrs and was at 230kmph around 300 mtrs mark and shud have ended with the top speed of 330kmph at 400mtrs mark (estimated)

it did the run in 9.2 secs including the reaction time (8.7secs to cover the quarter mile)

no swapnil..the car did a 9.5 seconds 400m WITHOUT reaction times..the reaction time is 0.54 seconds.

shan2nu the car was doin around 330+ at the quater mile time coz at the 200 meter mark, we measured the car at around 230 kmph....and then the sensors failed as it wasnt capable of those speeds. but the graph shows somewhere in the region of 350kmph.

hi guys, i just came back to Bangalore after a long drive from the Bombay speed run, it was great to see the wolf (ritesh) taking first place in the street stock category clocking 15.4 seconds in the practice run and 15.6 seconds in the finals , awsome timing for a OHC vtec , shabbir from bangalore on his supra was faster than the gallardo , with a time of 12 odd seconds, and finally gautham singhania's r33 skyline doing a time of 9.2seconds was just mind blowing , a time that was faster than the fastest bike in the speed run , the yamaha r1 which did a 10 second 1/4 mile and also setting a new 1/4 mile record for an indian drag event, this year also had lot of japanese imports in action, great to see the indian drag scene growing, but i hope the next speed run is organized well, and the public has enough space to witness the drag.

It's just not possible dude. It's not a question of how powerful the car, it's just that a car doing the 1/4 mile in 9.2 secs just cannot do more than 270kmph at the 400mtr mark.

Do a search and see if you can find any other car in the whole world......ever, that has done 330+kmph trap speed with a 1/4 mile time of 9.2 secs.

Here are some of the pictures I took:

Jitu's OHC Hybrid Turbo




Some of the bikes


'Busa with a nice but slightly inappropriate paintjob




Defender (was not there to participate!)




The Amby with the V-6


And notice the genuine Jaguar leaping cat badge on it!!! So I guess we can now rename it "Jagamby"


The EVO VII & Subaru face to face!


The M3






Indian Lancer converted to EVO & shod with slick drag radials


Silvia & Chirayu's Civic


Another shot of the Scooby


Notice the body of the 1.3L 800! It's mostly fibre!


The Blue Supra

A VTEC which I think did a 13.9 or something, not sure.


A couple of Zen's.




The ZX-14R she ran but had some fuelling problems and put in a disappointing performance as a result.






The "Camel Trophy" Defender

They were sponsored by Gautam Singhania & were in his team I believe. Hence, the Zapp sticker.

For all the inadequacies in event management, one car made it worth enduring them all.

I would like to thank Gautam Singhania for making me experience a 9.2 second Skyline. I saw the run from less than 10 feet away, and it was nothing short of spectacular. Believe me, it has just upped the game.

Congrats to all BHPians who participated, no matter what the result.

With reaction time or just the ET? I think I saw that 13.9 but maybe I am getting it confused with some other car's timing.
